Of late, the cucumbers are not too abundantly producing, so I read a tip to spray a light sugar water mixture around the flowers to help attract pollinators. Will try as pollination seems to be a problem of late.
When I don't have sufficient cukes to ferment, I buy this yummy-licious brand from the market - available year round. They also make a mean fermented sauerkraut!
Pickles, pickles, pickles!
